One of the 7 essential meta questions:

This is rapidly becoming a hot issue across the entire network: how to promote your site and how to reach out to the experts and pundits in your industry. We can come up with budgets and promotions but — more than any other issue raised here — the means and ideas about how to reach your target audience HAS TO come from you and your community. Has to. Has to, has to, has to! We simply are not experts in your field. We don’t have the the connections nor the experience you bring to the table. You are both our evangelist and our ambassador.

A good way to start is to search for questions tagged [promotion] on other metas.

Also, read A Recipe to Promote your Site.

I think what makes sense for this site is to invite your peers to review your code.

I just posted some code I'm not sure about -- I respect you guys' and gals' opinions, can you take a look at it and give me feedback?

Remember that we do NOT require logins of ANY KIND to participate here, so even if they just "type feedback in input box, enter name, press [submit]" it will work.

In other words, there is no login barrier.


A good start would be to ping the mailing lists for code review tools, maybe for test frameworks and related issues. Mentioning Code Review on these questions and suitable ones in Programmers would help too.

  • \$\begingroup\$ +1 - Was going to link to that. I'll be keeping my eye out for questions on SO that are better suited for Code Review. \$\endgroup\$

Does your social network (Farcebook, LinkedIn etc) include other coders? Say something to them.
